But everything happens for a reason
If you choose to look at it that way
And put truth into the things you do
And really believe what you say
It may be that everything happens for a reason, and this idea promotes the philosophy that there is a certain beautiful truth to every action, seeing as it all happens for some purpose. However, Vic doesn’t seem completely convinced by this. He is exploring the idea but is pondering its validity. This question comes between his pondering the lifestyle choices he made in the not too distant past and thinking about the bad things that happen in the world and wondering if these serve a purpose as well. Sometimes you don’t do the things you want and pay your dues and that is worthwhile, but what reason could there be to have babies get shot? This makes Vic skeptical.
